Although…now that I think of it they should have left it at Happy Holidays…or said Happy Hanukkah AND Merry Christmas. Funny, they have Sean, who’s Jewish…add the Christmas greeting at the end. Sigh. Okay…I’ll add it. Hope you had a Happy Hanukkah too!

Thank you for saying that Rebecca . By the way I didn’t know that Sean Kanan was Jewish. Interesting. And I also think that each soap should have at least one Jewish family or at least character. That said I enjoyed the good wishes. They should’ve done one last month around Thanksgiving to wish us everyone a happy Thanksgiving and for those who celebrate happy Hanukkah

Yes Lin…it’s funny how when issues of diversity come up it’s always about race but not religion. There are many soap actors who are Jewish…but don’t play Jewish characters. “Starr”/”Kiki” is half Jewish, Alexis is half Jewish, Sean is 100% Jewish, Brandon Barash aka Johnny is Jewish, etc…so Happy Belated Chanukah, Hanukkah…;)

Lin
Guest
Lin

I had no idea either, that Kiristen Alderson or Nancy Grahn were 1/2 or Brandon Barash was Jewish. Well, I guess they could make the excuse that Chanukah /Hanukkah/ Chanukkah etc was over. But they really should make an effort to wish a Happy Chanukah when it’s timely.
Belated Happy Chanukah to you!

So true, Rebecca1 and Lin. I made mention of this fact some posts ago when discussing the fact that the Latinos have been (quietly) represented on GH by Sonny’s presence all along, so I don’t know why there was such a clamoring about that issue and suddenly having to cater to that particular crowd. Furthermore, given that PC is located in New York, it beggars belief that there are no Jewish characters, particularly with a hospital setting to boot. As if there would not be at least a few doctors of the faith on staff? Give me a break! It… Read more »

This is neat and cute and stuff. But how about trying to spread a bit of holiday and Christmas cheer on the show? Instead of sons butchering their mother and dumping her body in an open grave…instead of greasy mobsters threatening people…instead of law abiding officers contemplating murder….how about some Christmas cheer?

David
Guest

Wow some people will just look for anything to compalin about. In great news to spread Christmas chair about GH was the press release ABC just released As the citizens of Port Charles reel from learning Robin is alive and AJ’s murder trial continues, “General Hospital” ranked as the #1 program in Daytime for the first time in over 6 years in Women 25-54 (1.18 million/1.9 rating), and also ranked #1 in Women 18-34 (289,000/0.9 rating) and Women 18-49 (880,000/1.4 rating), marking the series’ first sweep across the key women demos in over six years – both since week of… Read more »

They were leaving a Christmas greeting. If they had wanted to leave a Hanukkah greeting they could have and would have. The day has been called Christmas since itcame into existence. What is the issue? I don’t celebrate Hanukkah or Quanzaa but I am all for people who so celebrate those days to do so. If you don’t wish to celebrate CHRISTMAS, you don’t have to. No one is forcing you to.

Did they leave a Hanukkah greeting a few weeks ago? That’s the point. There are many viewers…who celebrate different holidays. ALL should be acknowledged…if they only said Happy Hanukkah but never mentioned Christmas perhaps you’d think it odd…or be pissed. Whatever. The “day” is not here yet…you’re referring to Christmas. So, in that vein, since it’s the HOLIDAY season, all of the holidays should me mentioned…or none at all.

Don’t like that suggestion? Lemme think…tough shite.

Lin

“If they wanted to leave a Hanukkah greeting they would have.” And how would you feel if they had left a Hanukkah greeting a few weeks ago, Johnny, and that was it. If they had left a Hanukkah greeting and left no Christmas greeting now or at all this year. Think about how you would feel. I doubt very seriously, from your insensitive comment that you can. Rebecca and I are not talking about Christmas here. We are not saying to call Christmas something else. I certainly think it’s charming that they are giving Christmas greetings. Chanukah is not on… Read more »

Actually…before you judge someone without knowing them…I am a minority. But besides that…are you saying that these actors are now obligated to post messages for every ethnic and different holiday?? That is absurd. The majority of the world still celebrates Christmas. These actors obviously celebrate Christmas…that is the message they left. Do you honestly feel slighted or left out because they didn’t mention a particular day you celebrate? I don’t celebrate Sadie Hawkins day…should I pitch a hissy fit if the actors left a Happy sadie Hawkins message??? These actors would sound very insincere if they got on video and… Read more »

Johnny…you really are ignorant. I thought I explained it well…I thought Lin explained it better. Let’s try again. F o l l o w the w o r d s…. A) It’s the HOLIDAY season. B) There is more than ONE holiday. C) There are Jewish actors in soaps…and a Jewish audience. It is not our holiday. Thus, when a cast wishes holiday greetings, it’s nice to include all in this holiday season…which is usually Christmas and Hanukkah. That’s a given. Sometimes they fall in the same week, sometimes weeks apart…but we all know those two holidays are celebrated around… Read more »

To Kelly Monaco and Michael Easton they are gorgeous

Merry Xmas and Happy New Year!!!!!

And today on GH, Sam was holding baby Georgie, she look so ‘motherly’……

Ron give Sam a baby with Silas

Today was a good start for them

Shay

KM was adorable with “Baby Girl Spinelli.” (Don’t like either name she is known by….hope her papa picks something truly original and deserving for his daughter!) Sam definitely needs a little “Clayette” of her own…while she has been a fab and convincing mother to her son, Danny, she looked far more natural with the little miss.

kaffe
Guest
kaffe

do you think she can have another baby??????

I hope Ron Carvalti and Frank Valenti give her a baby girl

She look so good holding that baby…the casting for that baby was good!!

It could have been Sam and Silas baby (I know GH fans will disagree with me)

Just give her baby girl name Sage

OK, I said my peace………

Shay
Guest
Shay

@kaffe…Hard to say if they will go there again with Sam (aka, the pregnancy route) given her difficult maternal history, but I’m all for her becoming a wife and mother again with Silas. I like her with him as a couple….they have an emerging lightness and fun about them that never happened during the “Stone Cold Era.” As for custom ordering a baby girl named Sage for Mr. and Mrs. Clay from the team of “Cartini,” good luck with that….LOL.

kaffe
Guest
kaffe

Im for it too!!!!!

No he may not use the name Sage because GH had a character named Sage on
The show before!!!!!

I just want a name that begin with”S”

The reason I want a baby for Sam:

!! To erase what Franco did to her in @ @
To make Silas a father the second time around
Plus Danny need a little sister…..

But the won’t name the baby Sage……

Can you think of a name?

Shay
Guest
Shay

Let’s see….there’s “Sasha,” “Sierra, “Sienna,” although the last one may sound a bit “too earthy” when combined with the surname “Clay!” Hah!

kaffe

I say the/ name should be Sierra Clay!!!

Sienna (the color brown)

But Ron should give the another baby!!!!!

wow…lotta seemingly, maybe? anti-semitic folks in soap land! Instead of agreeing that it would have been nice to include BOTH holidays in an earlier message, instead of just singling out Christmas….they can’t understand why that would be bothersome to some Hanukkah celebrating fans. I seem to recall a whole lotta people upset when stores took down their Merry Christmas signs and ONLY put up Happy Holidays. They were whining all over the place about how anti-Christian that was. How ’bout spreading your one-sided minds to incorporate ALL holidays….or see how it might bother some when one holiday is very often… Read more »

Kin Shriner Celebrates 45-Year Milestone as General Hospital’s Scott Baldwin

What would General Hospital be without Kin Shriner, who has always played Scott Baldwin to the hilt with unique style and acting chops? Today on August 2nd, Kin marks his 45th anniversary with the ABC daytime drama series, and the series just would never be the same without his four decades plus of performances, making him an enduring fan favorite.

Shriner debuted on GH back on this date in 1977.  Scott’s love story with Laura (Genie Francis) would begin to set a new trajectory for GH. Later, when Laura married Luke (Tony Geary) in 1981, and Scott made a shocking appearance at the reception and caught the bouquet, the character turned to the dark side which started a new era of story for Scott/Laura/Luke and more.

Scott is the stepson of attorney, Lee Baldwin (the late Peter Hansen) and Dr. Gail Adamson (the late Susan Brown); although through the years they tangled over differences, the family loved and cared for one another.

In more recent years, Scott’s legal eagle courtroom antics are always a must-see for viewers, as well as any time Shriner gets to show Scott’s emotional side, such as the time he learned his son Franco (Roger Howarth) had died.

Photo: ABC

Kin’s scenes with his current on-screen love interest, Kathleen Gati (Liesl) are always a delight for GH fans, as well.

In addition to his General Hospital run, Shriner appeared as Scott in the GH spinoff; Port Charles from 1997-2000 and again in 2001.

General Hospital’s Maura West Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

On last Thursday and Friday’s episode of General Hospital, the ABC soap opera finally moved the story forward with the reveal to Ava (Maura West) that Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) and Esme (Avery Pohl) slept together, and within it, fans got to witness the beginning of the fallout and the reaction as played by three-time Daytime Emmy-winner and enduring fan favorite, Maura West.

As one might expect, the material in the hands of the mighty West, and the acting choices she makes are always intriguing and masterful.

In story, things start to unravel for Ava, when outside Trina’s (Tabyana Ali) courtroom trial, Esme and Ava have a confrontation.  It is there that Esme snarks at Ava, that she has the ability to destroy her world.  When Ava dares her to try, Nikolas shows up on the scene begging Esme to stop.  However, a manipulative Esme says, “Too late, I’m ending this right here, right now.” After lighting the fire, Esme walks off telling Nikolas to have a nice chit chat with his wife.

Next, Ava and Nikolas go to a private office, and Nikolas tells her that he made a huge mistake. A now suspicious Ava, asks, “What kind of mistake?” Nikolas then goes on to explain how he slept with Esme, just once, when he thought his relationship with Ava had tanked and had suffered irreparable damage.

What comes after was where West shined, as a sarcastic Ava quipped, “Poor you, seduced by a high school graduate.”  Ava, then launches into that she thought she married a man, but instead she married a spineless weakling, and now she is going to burn him to the ground.

Later at Wyndemere, as Esme is frantically packing her suitcase and taking with her the all-important envelope linking her to Ryan (Jon Lindstrom), Ava appears and a confrontation begins with Ava calling out Esme as a, “conniving little whore”. Esme flaps back that Ava slept with both Morgan and Sonny (Maurice Benard)! Having put two and two together, Ava says she know that Esme is responsible for the revenge sex tape of Cameron (Willian Lipton) and Joss (Eden McCoyand setting fire to her car.

Courtesy/ABC

Ava has wised up from all of Esme’s nasty statements and has come to realize that everything Esme has done including sleeping with Nikolas, feels like a targeted, planned attack on her, and she knows there is more to this story than Esme has ever let on.  When Ava spots the envelope in Esme’s suitcase, she goes to get it, but Esme grabs it from her. Then, with a steely warning, Ava tells Esme that she will be going to the courthouse now to exonerate Trina, and if she doesn’t, Ava will make sure Esme disappears and no one will ever be able to find her alive.

Now, while some viewers may be waiting for a knock-down drag-out catfight, we don’t know what will happen on Monday or Tuesday’s episode, but sometimes it’s more delicious just letting the words and its intentions drive the action, and West delivered the goods in spades in scenes with Marcus Coloma and Avery Pohl.

For all the reasons stated above, Michael Fairman TV names Maura West’s work as The Power Performance of the Week.

What did you think of Maura’s performance in the scenes where Ava finds out Nikolas slept with Esme and Ava’s confrontation later with Esme? What do you hope happens next?  Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section.  But firstm check out some moments from West’s performance below.

Tony Dow, ‘Leave it to Beaver’ and ‘General Hospital’ Alum, Still Alive But in ‘Last Hours’ Despite Reports On His Death

UPDATED:  Since the original posting of this article, Tony Dow has now passed away.  On Wednesday, July 27th his son, Christopher confirmed his death on Facebook sharing: “Tony passed away earlier this morning, with his loving family at his side to see him through this journey.  We know that the world is collectively saddened by the loss of this incredible man. He gave so much to us all and was loved by so many. One fan said it best—“It is rare when there is a person who is so universally loved like Tony.”’

The original post below is the story on how Tony’s wife, Lauren Dow, had shared that her husband was still alive after erroneous news articles on his death were premature:

Lauren Dow, the wide of Tony Dow, best-known of his role of Wally Cleaver – the All-American older brother of “Beaver” Cleaver (Jerry Mathers) on the TV sitcom, Leave it to Beaver, shares that he is still alive amid previous reports of his passing early today.

Now comes word from Lauren to ABC7 in Los Angeles, that her husband is still breathing, but is in hospice care in their home.  She admitted that based on some health issues that happened overnight, she inferred that Tony had passed away when she informed people close to her and the family.

However, Dowd’s son Christopher confirmed to PEOPLE that his father, “is still alive but in his last hours. Under hospice care.”

Some of Dow’s other TV credits included: Adam-12, Mod Squad, Emergency, The Love Boat, and Murder, She Wrote plus he directed numerous TV episodes.
